  • "A beautiful, clean and well furnished cottage with a huge garden."

    Our family party of 10 ranging from 18 months to 98 years all had a fabulous stay. The house was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm and welcoming when we returned from a days exploring and the garden was much enjoyed for games of frisbee. The local pub has good beer and food and we had pre- booked a table as we were a large party. Ideal area for walking and visiting nearby Corwen. Chirk castle is definitely worth a visit. We plan to book Mill House again next year

  • "It's the 3rd time my family and I have been to the cottage and we have a really good time."

    The location is great and the huge field is brilliant for the kids and dogs. There are enough rooms to meet our needs too. However, in the 3 years we have noticed nothing has really been done to the place. We think it could use a bit of TLC. We have already searched to go back next year and it has gone up by £500 and we are getting to the point of thinking if it is worth it now and we'll probably look to go elsewhere.

  • "Fabulous house with such large grounds, brilliant for our 2 dogs who loved the field."

    Very relaxing and perfect location with places of interest only a few miles drive either way.

  • "The Millhouse is an amazing property with a nice lawn big enough to drive a car around."

    The cottage was well occupied with all the necessary furniture, white goods, and items like BBQ, wood burner. There is an outside dining area and also a nice conservatory. It is in a very nice location, excellent for local exploration and also very near the river Dee. My only negative comment is regarding cleanliness, the property could have been cleaned a bit more, the carpets were bit dusty and the cobwebs were not removed fully. I highly recommend this property for a group of 10-12 people.

  • "Mill House is ideal for large family groups or friends."

    We had a fantastic time with our grandkids. Loads of space for them to explore and play. House is basic but well equipped, just right for small children. So pleased we have rebooked for same time next year.

  • "We had a few minor issues but reported them & someone came on same day to fix."

    We loved the large safe lawn for our 2 dogs. The property is slightly dated but provided modern facilities. An ideal base for exploring North Wales before coming back to a lovely secluded spot.

  • "The house was absolutely amazing!"

    We stayed here with 13 people in total (9 adults 4 kids) and none of us felt cramped there was plenty of room for all of us at the dinner table and the garden was beautiful and very large so we played a game of rounders! We will definitely be back to stay again.

  • "There were 8 people staying."

    The house was extremely comfortable and afforded us plenty of space. A good supply of crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchen equipment was well received by all. Heating and hot water when required was perfect. Ideally situated for visiting other places in the region in the beautiful Dee Valley.

  • "Overall the holiday was wonderful."

    The property however is really in need of updating and a proper clean in particular the bathrooms and toilets which are badly stained (black grouting etc_) BBQ could not be used as it was filthy from last family who let the house, furniture in the garden was damaged/chairs etc.. Apart from this the house is great, but the lack of cleanliness was a let down. Just really needs some TLC. Thanks

  • "Mill house is an excellently situated location offering more than enough room and comfort for a relaxing holiday."

    We were surprised at the space available and the dog loved it. We toured around the local area, and made use of local pub restaurants, and it met all of our expectations.

  • "Unfortunately, my wife & I were unable to join our relatives for this holiday because I was diagnosed s having cancer."

    However our friends tell us that they were somewhat disappointed over the rather tired look of the property & in particular were irritated by the lack of hooks & shelves in the en suites. As a group we have had cottage holidays for over 10 years & only had to complain once before so this whinge is not typical! We always select 4 or 5 star properties so while there were good points about the cottage these relatively minor omissions were as I say didappointing & not what we epect from Sykes Cottages.

  • "This review should be read in conjunction with "The Dairy" feedback as we rented both properties for our family get-together."

    Although this was the first time we have used Mill House for the number of people staying the kitchen was extremely small. The gardens, wooden furniture excluding, were magnificent for all but especially the youngsters and as we were blessed with wonderful weather it made up for some of the niggles. As with The Dairy the comments regarding towels and garden furniture also apply here. Indeed some of the garden furniture was broken and unusable. There was also a problem with one double bed which had an old spring frame base which was very noisy. My sister and brother in law had to put the mattress on the floor to get a decent night's sleep. This was reported to the caretaker on departure. WiFi access in both properties was intermittent.

About the location

CARROG

Corwen 3 miles; Llangollen 8 miles; Bala 14 miles.

Carrog is a very pretty village set on the banks of the River Dee which is home to a local pub that serves food, as well the Carrog Bridge which was built in 1660. It is a quaint picturesque village in the county of Denbighshire and is surrounded by the Berwyn Mountain range offering spectacular views. The Carrog steam railway station is part of the Llangollen Railway which runs from Corwen to Llangollen. Corwen is immersed in history and heritage; learn about Owain Glyndwr, the self-proclaimed Prince of Wales, explore beautiful Rug Chapel and Langar Church, or climb through the heather to one of the most important Iron Age hill forts, Caer Drewyn, built around 800 BC. Take a horse-drawn canal boat from Llangollen and visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pontcysyllte, Britain’s largest aqueduct. Visit the National Trust properties of Chirk Castle and Erdigg, explore the atmospheric ruins of Cistercian Valle Crucis Abbey and Castell Dinas Brân. Foodies can visit the nearby Rhug Estate, one of the largest organic properties in the UK and dine at Tyddyn Llan in nearby Llandrillo, considered to be one of Wales' finest restaurants.
